Welcome To The World | Got Sketch #144

A new sketch is up on the Got Sketch? blog today. I made a baby boy card based on Sketch 144. Instead of some baby themed papers or colors I used the Sasparilla collection from October Afternoon. A great collection for masculine cards or other projects.



I cut the baby clothes by hand. I do have the die that matches the stamp set, but.....I couldn't find it anywhere. I'm sure it will show up once I have cleared out my scrap room.



Instead of the flower on the sketch I cut circles from patterned paper and adhered a button.

Happy Mother's Day

It's been ages since I last blogged. I had and still have more important issues to deal with, so blogging was not one of my priorities. Besides, if you don't make any cards there isn't much to blog about. {wink} Inspiration is slowly...very slowly...getting back, but making a card is not as easy as it was before. The process takes ages, and I'm not always satisfied about the result. I'm sure that will change once I make more cards again.

Last week I bought some new paper collections from Crate Paper and Lily Bee Designs. Can you believe I had no idea what collections were released since last summer? I simply had no interest. Today's cards are the ones I made for Mother's Day. The first card is the one I made for my mom-in-law.
